    The Dodgers not only defeated the Colorado Rockies, 6-5, on Saturday, but L.A. closer Kenley Jansen got the last five outs to protect the one-run lead.
    Making this feat all the more noteworthy is that Jansen pulled it off at mile-high Coors Field, where he’s had his difficulties.
    The Dodgers will be really hard to beat in the NL West if Jansen can return to his past greatness.
